Healthy Snickers Smoothie Bowl

I absolutely looooove anything and everything to do with snickers. So, when I had a snickers smoothie bowl for the first time at Hills Organics for brunch a few weeks back, I decided instantly that I was going to recreate this myself, as it tasted flippin’ fantastic, and meant that I’d be able enjoy it whenever I liked (and not need to trek all the way there to have it every time).

I went searching online for some inspiration and ended up combining a few different recipes into one! I’m someone who has a great big smoothie for breakfast almost every morning (whether in a bowl or glass), but my favourite thing about putting them into bowls is the endless choices of toppings you can add to them (you could do the same for smoothies in yo standard cup, but it’s more challenging to drink them as the toppings get sucked up into the straw 😅). There’s also something really satisfying about eating it out of a bowl… I just love popping mine into coconut bowls, as it gives them such a tropical, fancy vibe 😜

Any who, moving on. This smoothie is made with cacao powder and peanut butter to give it that chocolatey-peanutty taste we all know and love in Snickers. Alternatively, you can use carob powder instead of cacao to make it caffeine free, but I’ve found cacao tastes better.

Feel free to use other sweeteners too instead of dates, or other plant milk or even water or coconut water instead of almond milk. You can even make your own homemade plant milks, it’s so much fun, and they’re usually cheaper and taste amazing!

I used 2 frozen bananas to make this smoothie as I was opting to use as little sweeteners and sugar as possible. But feel free to use 4 bananas if you’d prefer a sweeter smoothie (I found it was sweet enough with 2 though). If you’re blender isn’t powerful you can just use regular bananas that aren’t frozen (I just find freezing them gives the smoothie a thicker consistency – like nice-cream). OR, you can just blend the rest of the ingredients before adding in the chopped frozen bananas.

There are sooooo many toppings you can add to it too! The ones I listed below were just the add-ons I used that were similar to the toppings I had on my smoothie bowl at the cafe. But you’re more than welcome to add things like fresh fruit, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, dairy-free chocolate or peanut butter (and the list goes on!)

It’s a wonderful vegan-friendly, gluten-free dish, and is so versatile. You can change up the toppings, or add in chocolate chips, coconut flakes, or other add-ins to create new variations of this recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/4-1/2 cup plant milk (I used almond milk) – use less if you want your smoothie to be a thicker consistency, or more if you want a thin, more liquid-like smoothie
  • 4 ice cubes*
  • 1-2 tbsp cacao powder (depending on how chocolatey you want your smoothie to be)
  • 1 tbsp peanut butter
  • 4 dates, pitted

Toppings:

  • Coconut flakes/shredded coconut
  • Banana
  • Cacao nibs
  • Peanut butter
  • Coconut whipped cream (recipe here)
  • Melted dairy-free chocolate (to drizzle over the top)

Instructions:

  1. Add all the smoothie ingredients to a high powered blender and blend together until well combined.
  2. Pour into a bowl then add desired toppings on top.
  3. Enjoy!!

Notes:

*TIP: you can freeze plant milk (like almond, coconut, hemp milk, etc.) into ice cube trays and use them in your smoothies for a creamier, more flavour-rich smoothie! OR, try freezing coconut cream into ice cubes for a NEXT LEVEL creamy texture.
